INDIANAPOLIS - Jeffrey Mark Motorsport successfully completed their first oval of the season. Starting from the back of the pack, #76 pilot Juan Pablo Garcia held on tight surviving two wrecks during the 40-lap event.

The field of 19 made for a crowded race at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. A five car accident towards the beginning of the show forced a red flag but the cars continued their laps shortly after. A solid run for Juan Pablo Garcia as he looks to improve with experience.

"It was a very hard race for me," Garcia said. "I don't have very much experience on ovals so each lap was new for me. I am quite happy that I finished the race and I was able to learn a lot of things about ovals. I now need to put all those together to improve for the next oval."

Experience will come with time, as three more ovals are included in the Firestone Indy Light schedule this season. The team will now head to Detroit for the Streets of Belle Isle on Saturday June 2.
